Former @ TexasTechMBB star, @ NBA player & Dallas legend, Andre Emmett, died today & wrote former head coach Fran Fraschilla of Manhattan, St. John & # 39; s and New Mexico. & # 39; I got to know him very well at @SMUBasketball Crum Center, where he trained out of season. Very friendly and kind to all ballers there. I am very, very sad now. It hits hard. RIP, Dre. & # 39;

Emmett's tenure at Texas Tech was best remembered for his interactions with hard coach Bobby Knight, who recently joined the Red Raiders after a career in the Hall of Fame in Indiana.
Although he often drew Knight & # 39; s anger, Emmett seemed to thrive with the tough love.
& # 39; Bob Knight was just as tough against Andre Emmett as any player he coached at @TexasTechMBB, & # 39; Fraschilla wrote. & # 39; (There were some legendary running sessions late at night). Finished 2,246 points. & # 39;
Emmett last played in the Big 3 League, with mainly former NBA and NCAA stars.
& # 39; The BIG3 is in shock about the sudden and tragic death of Andre Emmett & # 39 ;, read a tweet from the organization. & # 39; Andre was a member of the BIG3 family for two seasons and never without a smile on his face. His kindness towards others and his easy attitude made him a pleasure to be around. & # 39;
